"Why should I become a Horse Boy Method Practitioner or Movement Method Mentor?"

Parents:

"Why should I choose an Independent Horse Boy Method Practitioner or Movement Method Mentor to work with my Family?"

Being an Independent Horse Boy Method Practitioner or Movement Method Mentor means that your clients can be sure that you have taken the action to gain knowledge of and understand the application of Horse Boy or Movement Method. For you as a Practitioner or Mentor it gives you access to an international community of qualified peers and a client base from which to draw.
It also means that you agree to abide by the Horse Boy Code of Conduct which in turn shows to your clients that you are offering a high quality of service.

Independent Horse Boy Method Practitioner and Movement Method Mentor also have:

  • A thorough grounding in Autism and other Neuro-Psychiatric conditions.
  • Competence in dealing with different cognition
  • A higher level of horsemanship*
  • Access to Horse Boy Founders and Directors
  • Access to Horse Boy Educational materials
  • Commitment to continuous education in Horse Boy or Movement Method

*Dependent on Star Rating

 

Star Rankings:

Within our Horse Boy Method and Movement Method ranking we certify people to be Independent Practitioner of Horse Boy Method and Independent Mentors of Movement Method. Independent Practitioners that decide to form a dedicated center together with other Practitioners and Mentors, we call Independent Horse Boy Tribes. This does not mean that this center will only offer Horse Boy Method, but it means that this center will have dedicated days and areas, that are designed to simulate an environment as similar to Horse Boy’s own New Trails in Texas as possible.

Each Practitioner or Mentor will have to comply to the Horse Boy Code of Conduct, must be an active Gold Member on HorseBoyWorld.com, must have completed and passed all exams and required material for each level and must participate in Mandatory Continuous Education (MCE) by joining in at least two teleconference or webinars specified as Horse Boy MCE courses per year. Violation of the Code of Conduct or not completing these other requirements will disqualify the Practitioner or Mentor from being listed on HorseBoyWorld.com and therefore will prevent them from being an active and recognized Practitioner or Mentor.

Independence of businesses and liabilities

All Practitioners and Mentors are independent and Horse Boy cannot guarantee any of the services rendered. Practitioners and Mentors, as well as volunteers and staff of Practitioners or Mentors will indemnify and hold Horse Boy harmless from all liability and other claims.

Practitioners are not licensed to teach Horse Boy Method. Mentors are not licensed to teach Movement Method. Please check out our Instructor requirements if you are interested in becoming a Horse Boy Instructor teach Horse Boy Method 1 to professionals or parents. Please check out this page for requirements for Movement Method Instructors.
